Dorothy was always very thoughtful of others and made lifelong contributions to the community. She was a member of New Life Worship Center in Moss Bluff. Dorothy loved eating out especially at the Olive Garden, that was her favorite. She also enjoyed taking trips to Galveston. She was dearly loved and will be greatly missed.
